Graduate Degree Programs & Schedule of Courses

Bachelor of Divinity

The Bachelor of Divinity Degree is part of the fast track to the Doctoral Degrees.  This or the Master of Divinity Degree is a required degree on the way to advanced degrees.  This is the first step for students serious about their education into advanced studies.

The Bachelor of Divinity Degree is the most cost effective way to obtain a Doctoral degree; with the next step being to study a Master degree program and then go on to a 32 to 40 unit study for a Doctoral degree.  Those preferring to go directly to the study of a Master’s degree will however, have to make up the units of study at a Doctoral level if they decide later to go on for a Doctoral degree.
